Default How do you put money on his books?

Me and my cuzzin was talkin about it today, I asked her how she put money on her man's books. I have a destinated amount to get him through the whole month straight, while she just waits till he calls and tells her to send money when he gets broke. Me personally I liked the certain I can count on amount every month cause calling wasn't my thang. Just wanted yall input.

I was going to be a smartass and say "with my hands".












I put money on his books whenever he tells me he needs more. He's spoiled.

Hmm... randomly. I have no set time that I do it.. he doesnt want me putting money on his account FULL STOP but that doesnt stop me So I just put some whenever I feel like it, maybe once a month or two... plus I'll send him books, etc.

well normally i take him about $10 every week. at the county jail they dont have alot that they can buy just candy bars, crackers and stamps. so he doesnt need too much unless he goes to the doctor or something.

I put money on my guys books only when he needs some extra cash, other than that he has a prison job so he uses that money up first.

I send money online each payday using Jpay. That way he's taken care of and has whatever he needs without asking.

His last two times locked up he had no one, family didn't help; nothing. He hustled, gambled and did whatever he had to in order to have money and to get what he needed. That however kept him in trouble; he was even stabbed once! I have no problem making sure he has whatever he needs. On my end I just budget it like a bill so I know at least a certain amount will go to him twice a month.

I just go ahead a put the same amount on his books every month. So he don't have to waste time asking me for the money and I don't have to waste time saying baby I got you. Knowing that we could have used that valuable time talking about something else.

The same as Mrs Tillmon. Same amount of money on the same day each month. That just makes it easier I guess!. It isn't a huge amount but at least being regular he knows how much and when.

IMO $200 will get someone in prison through cool for the whole month, more than that then they doing even better. I'm the type I learned from phuckin with the best that I can't do too much in spoiling my man, I want him to appreciate me and realize that thangs ain't easy but its a beautiful thang when you can be counted on. See, number one is being counted on to me. Kings Wifey your man was doing what he had to do back n da day, I take my hat off to him, I know he loves you!!! That's what's up cause when you got someone on the outside that make sure you alright consistently---that's a beautiful thang!!!

The grammar, wow!!! I'm also in school so I have to budget very carefully. My man has a job in the inside so he can take care of himself. He has never asked me for money, not one time~~. I'll send him a set amount because I know that I want to talk to him and he does call just about everyday. (He's been mad, so he hasn't called in 4 days). I'll shoot him a special amount for holidays or even to buy a brand new pair of sneakers. His best friend sends him money for a new pair of sneaks and to get his hair cut. My Boo is spoiled and I dont' know what I'm going to do with him. LOL

I only did it a couple of times, but he NEVER asked me for a dime. In fact, he didn't even feel right taking it. Now I don't send any because I'm hurting too bad out here to do so, or I would if I had it.

Hubby doesn't need much on his books. He gets his quarterly package and he has a job inside, so I JPay him $100 every 3 months and that's more than enough he says.

I usually just send it when he calls, but now he told me to stop because he is worried that I will do without to send him money. He wants me to save money so when he gets transferred to Georgia I will have money for gas to visit and drive the hours to see him. I still will send him money, I know we won't refuse it.

@ Nicole 12345. Avatars are small but that's a cute pic of you and your man (I take it that's you and your man). I think that Interracial Relationships with a Black woman and different race of man is so cute to me.

I do not routinely put money on his books. This is something that his sister has been doing for him for the past year. Somehow she found out the extent of my obligations without his help and she decided that she would take this off my hands. He never asked me for a dime. Once in a while I can tell that he needs money and I will send some. I never want him to do without, but it is not a regular thing for me.

I actually put money in his books every week he has only been there for a month and has about 400.00 in his books plus I send him packages every week on line as well. So yeah my man already knows that on thursday which is pay day for me he gets 200.00 money order sent to him and i order 2 of the 50.00 packages of food for him and some phone cards. So yeah my man is spoiled, but then again so am I, when he was out. I did tend to find out that they process the money orders from the US Post Office without any delay. So just a little FYI.

That's cool. I like how you do that. I can't order packages for him, he's in the Feds. You a good woman, but obviously he's a good man. Right On!

I wish we had packages, then maybe the state wouldnt be crying all the damn time about their 400 million dollar a year PRISON problem.

I send money twice a month. He has a job inside and gets a whole 18.60 a month. I wish we had jpay, but it only works at one place in KY and I am NOT paying 10 dollars to send him western union money. He gets his 2 money orders and IF I have a good month (only paid 2x a month) he gets extra scrilla.
